Fête de la Madeleine

Châteaurenard - Village fête - Du 4 au 9 août - Free

The origins of Mary Magdelene’s cart are entirely Provencal. In the middle ages, carts drawn by draught horses paraded around village streets to celebrate the completion of heavy work in the fields. It was to celebrate the development of irrigation in the region, giving rise to market gardening and fruit growing, that Mary Magdalene’s cart was created in the 17th century, and its has been paraded every year on the 1st Sunday in August since then.
For the entire festival period, bull running, Camargue bull games, a fairground, drinks stands, exhibitions, etc.
